same here ... i was coming to post i'm fixed! tried it last night. and just tried it again. boink. nothing.
then tried again. and it works.
closed all running apps .. tried again .. boink .. brokey.
as i look at my phone .. it actually seems that when it works the phone senses that it's up against my ear and the screen turns OFF, the times it doesn't the pull down menu pops up, or the voicemail window flips horizontal (depending on the angle i hold my phone at) -- it seems to be when the phone screen actually stays ON - and acts like i'm touching it or flipping it.
Interested to hear if yours is still working RickBeatty. Mine worked for a bit, but now does not again. I went to listen to a saved voicemail and boom, issue is back and happens everywhere in the Verizon Voicemail app again now.
Seems to be still working ok for me on my SGS7. I have restarted my phone and it's still working.
I don't want to declare victory yet because others are still having the problem. I don't use my voice mail a lot so maybe I'm just running on luck.
I updated Samsung Pay to the latest version (on my Samsung S6, it's version 2.7.13 dated 6/30/17), and so far Verizon Voicemail is working without the frustrating pauses and stops that have been plaguing me for months. Just to note, Samsung Pay didn't automatically update on my phone despite having auto updates turned on in the Google Play store--I had to open the Samsung Pay app, click the 3 vertical dots at the top right corner, choose Settings, scroll down to the very bottom to "About Samsung Pay", then check the version number and click the Update button to get the latest update. Once I installed the update and restarted the phone, I've been able to use the Samsung Pay app, including Favorite Cards and using the Lock screen and Home screen, without incident so far. Fingers crossed.
Yeah, I thought it was working for a while too, but as soon as I switched folders (inbox/deleted) a couple times and listened to a few different messages, the problem popped right back up again.

Thank you for your response. After searching through support at the Verizon website, I couldn't figure out what my software version is. I ran a system update just now and it came back that everything was updated. I couldn't find the software version, but this is what I could find on my phone: Baseband version G920VVRS4DQE1, Kernel version 3.10.61, Build number NRD90M.G920VVRS4DQE1
As I said before, the message I get from my phone is that everything is updated and I can't find anything that shows NRD90M.N92-VVRU3CQF3. Help?! Thanks!

Hi. Not sure if this issue was ever resolved, but I have had the problem now for awhile...most of you had newer phones with different versions...mine is 6.01 which I believe is Marshmellow.
You see, I still have my Galaxy Note 4. I do not have Samsung Pay anywhere on my phone. I keep my lock screen unlocked all the time.
I didn't always have this problem, so perhaps it was a recent Verizon upgrade that started the problem. I checked and had 2 recent Verizon updates...May 31 and August 8...I am thinking the last update did something to cause the problem of the voice mail stopping when held to ear.
Any ideas on this and has there been a resolution. Thanks
